About us

Coalescion is built upon the belief that the world cannot (co)exist on good ideas alone. In the absence of meaningful application, ideas are food prepared but unconsumed. In 2021, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Shawn Baker-Garcia turned this belief into reality with the launch of Coalescion. A 501 (c)(3) organization that represents the exciting expression and fusion of more than a decade’s worth of conceived of, field tested, and fine-tuned national and international security and engagement expertise, principles, and practices

Our Vision

Sustainable human survival, security, and “thrivability”

Our Mission

Advancing and operationalizing global security literacy, representation, outcomes, and human interaction models through mutually reinforcing research and analysis, engagement, education and training, and advocacy. 

Who inspires us?

The thinkers who provide models and tools for, the “doers” – Simon Sinek (finding your why), Peter Senge (systems thinking), Stephen Covey (leadership principles), and the often unseen, unheard, and unsung heroes working day in and day out to keep our world safe. These individuals live between the high-level policy visionaries/architects and the legions of front-line personnel who rely on and look to practitioner leaders to provide them with the tools, support, and environment necessary to optimize their performance and meet their missions. 

Our Why

Our “Why” is the pursuit and application of human security models that are earth-friendly, practically sustainable, and mutually thrive-able – as the great George Carlin once said, “Save the planet?! We don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet!” He was right. Understanding how to peacefully and productively, engage, work, and live with each other may end up being the greatest and most impactful way to preserve the planet we call home.
